Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3 - The boy from Parts (1997) and More Parts (2001, both Dial) returns. Here, he is preparing to go to school. Each page features a phrase that includes an idiom, along with a humorous illustration of the child literally living up to that particular expression. For example, for "I lost my head," the headless youngster wanders around with arms outstretched looking for his missing body part, which is partially concealed behind a chair. Along the bottom of the page, his toys illustrate additional figures of speech ("It makes my head spin," "I laughed my head off," "My head is in the clouds"). Created with colored pencils and watercolor washes, the bright, manic artwork features pop-eyed characters drawn with a loose, squiggly line. The rhyming, which has always been a weak point in the books, is kept to a minimum while the chaos is kept at the previous high level. Arnold's art manages to keep the gross-out factor reasonable while producing plenty of laughs. Even libraries without the first two titles will find this a fun choice for sharing aloud and for tempting independent readers. - Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha's Public Library, WI

About the Author

Tedd Arnold lives in Elmira, New York.

More About the Author

Born in Elmira, New York, Tedd grew up in a family of six with three brothers. His family lived on a farm in Pennsylvania for several years then returned to Elmira until Tedd was ten years old. His father's work then required that they move to Gainesville, Florida. There, Tedd's first art lessons in an abandoned dentist's office over the Happy Hour pool hall eventually led to a fine arts degree from the University of Florida. He and his wife, Carol, started their family in Tallahassee where Tedd worked as a commercial illustrator. Carol, a Kindergarten teacher, drew Tedd's attention to children's books. Their first son, Walter, inspired his breakthrough picture book, No Jumping on the Bed!. His second son, William, now stars in No More Water in the Tub!, a sequel to his first book. He has now published more than 30 books as author and illustrator. When not working on his books, Tedd's interests include tennis, sketching, reading, coin collecting, and the computer."The inspiration to begin writing and illustrating for children came from my wife, Carol. As a kindergarten teacher, she collected picture books. I was attracted to their colorful pages and the way the words and pictures played with each other, much like the captioned cartoons I had drawn when I was young."Perhaps the biggest surprise of my career as an author is that I'm now going back to elementary school! Visiting young readers in classrooms and libraries is something I love. Kids keep me on my toes and they ask a lot of questions. The number one question seems to be, 'Where do you get your ideas?' It's also the hardest question to answer because every idea is different. Some ideas seem to pop out of thin air -- while I'm in the shower or walking the dog. Others come from reading or research. But most of my ideas come from my family and the things they do and say."For instance, one time when my first son, Walter, was five years old, I found him lying on the couch, looking pale as a ghost and clutching a Bible to his chest. He was praying! When I asked what was wrong, he wouldn't answer. In fact, he wouldn't even open his mouth. My wife, Carol, finally coaxed a response from him: he pointed inside his mouth. Carol exclaimed, 'You have a loose tooth!' Walter's eyes nearly popped out with fright. We quickly assured him that it was perfectly okay for his tooth to come loose and that a new one would replace it. But Carol and I looked at each other and realized that despite all our efforts to be good parents, we had somehow completely forgotten to warn Walter that teeth fall out! He had thought he was falling apart! I made a little note in my journal; then ten years later, I expanded that memory into my book Parts."Tedd Arnold lives in Elmira, New York, with his wife, Carol, two sons, Walter and William, two cats, Cody and Frankie, and one dog, Hershey.

The original Parts was great and my youngster loved reading it over and over. Very funny story.

This third book in the series appears it has gotten to the stage where they are trying to "milk dollars out of the franchise". The style change is a unpleasant surprise and now it is simple one line idiom's which the child audience does not find entertaining. This is not a book I can read to my 4 year old at bedtime since there is only one sentence per page. While some people may find the idiom's interesting, because it is a different style I think they should not have been misleading and included it in the "Parts Franchise" that kids have come to expect as a good read for bedtime.

I feel like I wasted my $12 on this one...I wish I had looked at it at the bookstore instead of relying on the Parts franchise name and buying it sight unseen on Amazon.

My 4 1/2 year old son and I loved the first two books in this series. I found the language in this book offensive and did not continue reading after the first 4 or 5 pages. If you prefer not to use the words stupid, crazy, and idiot in your household then this is not the book for you.

Format: Hardcover
My boys (7 and 3) both love the 'Parts' and 'More Parts' books by Tedd Arnold, so we were very excited to find out that 'Even More Parts' had been published. Unfortunately, we were all a little disappointed in the third book. It is basically a collection of idioms with funny illustrations - "I laughed my head off.", "My eyes are glued to the television.", "Keep your nose out of other people's business.". Tedd Arnold's idea of illustrating idioms as a child would understand them is very funny, but 'Parts' and 'More Parts' were much more enjoyable.

Format: Hardcover
The 3rd book in his wildly funny series on body parts idioms, Even More Parts shows this author has never lost his ability to see things from the child's perspective, even if is macabre and a bit weird! The scene opens with our protagonist writing a "list of all the scary things" he's heard. This list is what the bulk of the book is constructed around: idioms on body parts, illustrated with crazy interpretations of them. For example, "I want all eyes on me" shows a teacher being pelleted with her classes' eyeballs. In the bottom margin of the pages are even more crazy interpretations of common idioms, in miniature. Altogether, this is a hysterically funny book, and is a great read-aloud for younger elementary classrooms and an engaging read-alone for older children. This might also be used for to stimulate student creativity in upper elementary and lower middle school art/anatomy/literature projects and is a wonderful introduction for kids on what idioms are.

I was very disappointed in this book. My granddaughter loves Parts and I thought this book and More Parts would be a wonderful addition. Boy was I wrong. There is no story to either one, and it is not interesting to any child I have shown it to. I am very sorry I purchased either one.

Format: Hardcover
This book is about a boy that jots down the things he hears.He is also losing parts.His toys and his cat get freaked out of him losing parts.

He starts out losing his head.Then changes his mind.Then the book goes on from head to toe.His toys are action figures.On one page it says I want all eyes on me. He is nervous that all of the children's eyes will be on the teacher. The author of this book is Ted Arnold.

If I were to recommend this book I would recomend the book to my little sister Gianna because I know she would love it because she would laugh at the funny pictures.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Z Hayes HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 5, 2007
Format: Paperback
My 2 and a half-year old loves Parts & More Parts, and begs for repeated readings. We got this book as an incentive at the local library for having completed a summer reading program for kids. I thought the third book in the trilogy would be similar to the first two, and was very wrong in my assumption. This is definitely for older kids, and though it says it is suitable for 1st graders, I think its more appropriate for those in the upper elementary classes. It deals with idioms, using the different body parts to illustrate the use of idioms, like "Don't give me lip", "Can I lend you a helping hand?" etc...though it is creative, there seems to be a lack of humor that was so apparent in the earlier two books in the series. Oh well, that's just my opinion...its just written in a different vein than Parts & More Parts.

Hilarious! My kids love the plays on words & idioms. We laugh every time we read this. I sent it as a gift to a foreign friend who specializes in linguistics, specifically in American idioms. She loved it, too.
